A performance boot ideal for skimo racing and high-intensity training. Closely related to high-end race boots, the PDG is a slightly heavier yet equally agile iteration. The Grilamid shell features a stiff fibreglass cuff to help drive your skis. Rubber soles provide traction on non-snow surfaces, while the rock-solid ski/walk mechanism allows for easy changes from ski to walk mode. The 2 buckle system features an optional power strap for close contact on high-performance days. While the liner provides some moisture management and insulation, these boots lack shell coverings in the upper sections, so are susceptible to moisture when booting through big snow.
